There will be two PokerStars Platinum Passes at stake in October, including one in a Mystery Bounty, as well as a rich schedule of tournaments for all bankrolls.
The European Poker Tour is coming back to London after an eight-year hiatus, and PokerStars seems intent on making the event one to remember. The 2022 edition of EPT London will take place October 18 – 28, and, among other things, players will have a chance to win two PSPC Platinum Passes worth $30,000 each.
One of these passes will be up for grabs in a Mystery Bounty, marking the first time the operator will give a highly coveted PokerStars Platinum Pass away in this fashion.
Mystery Bounty tournaments are a new format where players get to draw envelopes after eliminating players to claim their bounty. In this particular event, one envelope will contain the $30,000 Platinum Pass, so the tournament will likely generate quite a bit of interest.
Online qualifiers for EPT London and UKIPT will have another shot at a Platinum Pass via a live all-in shootout on October 22.
Of course, there will be plenty of quality tournament action over the ten days, with the £5,300 EPT Main Event and £1,100 UKIPT Main Event leading the way. The £440 UKIPT Mystery Bounty Cup is another exciting and affordable event taking place on October 20 – 21, and that one could create quite a bit of buzz.
As the name suggests, the event will feature a massive $1,000,000 prize pool while only requiring a mere $1 buy-in, promising loads of great value for the players.
Starting flights have kicked off already and will be taking place twice every Wednesday and Sunday for the next four weeks, with 13% of the field moving on to final Day 2, taking place on August 22. The tournament will play down to the winner on that day, and the final table action will be streamed live on the WPT Twitch channel.
The Summer Festival will feature many more valuable events, including the $330 Main Event, which also comes with a guarantee of a cool million, with several exciting tournaments taking place every day of the series.
